Rosebery – Still Mining!

P1900133A short drive from Zeehan is another mining town – Rosebery. The difference is that Rosebery is still drawing minerals from the earth with the mine in the centre of the town!

You know when you are close, as you drive by you can see the old buckets which still hang from the towers.

 

 

Camping just a few kms before the town near the Stitt River.

There is a small building at the edge of town telling of its mineral history. Do go have a look, you will learn much about its wealth.
